“About 10 years ago, I hap­pened to walk past a Bul­gari bou­tique and fell head over heels in love with the Ser­penti. It was a beau­ti­ful ban­gle and, when I first laid eyes on it, there was a mo­ment of in­stant at­trac­tion – I re­mem­ber think­ing, ‘ Wow. That’s the one!’ There was some­thing about its sin­u­ous form and the way it wraps around my wrist that makes me feel like a sen­su­ous woman – con­fi­dent and al­lur­ing. Hon­estly, who could deny the charms of such an iconic piece?

“Since then, I’ve been steadily grow­ing my col­lec­tion with the Ser­penti and, soon, my ap­pre­ci­a­tion for Bul­gari’s beau­ti­fully de­signed jew­ellery grew as well. I have no idea ex­actly how many of the jew­eller’s pieces I have in my col­lec­tion, but let’s just say I have enough to set up a bou­tique of my own!

“At the mo­ment, I am taken in by a fab­u­lous Monete neck­lace from the Bul­gari Mag­nif­i­cent In­spi­ra­tions High Jew­ellery Col­lec­tion. This is an ab­so­lutely gor­geous pink gold neck­lace with a sil­ver coin sur­rounded by ru­bies and di­a­monds. When I came across this neck­lace, I re­mem­ber the de­sire to put it on over­whelmed me as much as it did with my very first Ser­penti, and own­ing this piece has brought me im­mense hap­pi­ness.

“I love jew­ellery and I’m not shy about wear­ing them! Af­ter all, they’re an in­vest­ment in my­self. I work hard and, so, I re­ward my­self equally well. It’s hard to pin­point ex­actly why I adore these pre­cious pieces, but what I can say is how much I love the way they make me feel. When I put on a piece of jew­ellery, I feel like a woman; it completes me. I con­sider jew­ellery as my own per­sonal tal­is­mans. When­ever I find my­self feel­ing blue, I sim­ply put on my bi­jouterie and im­me­di­ately feel on top of the world. You could say they add sparkle to my life!”
